Screen Print your own t-shirts // How-To

I like to see nonsense. Today I’m going to show you how to screen book your own t-shirts. You’re going to need a screen, a squeegee, and some photo emulsion. This nonsense comes in 2 responsibilities. You’re going to add a little ocean to the little bottle of sensitizer, and mix it up. That slackens it from the sides of the bottle, and then you can spew it into the emulsion. Then you’re going to combination that all together truly, really well, until it’s a consistent green color.

It might take a little while, but you want to make sure that you get it fully consistent. Once you have it, you spew a bit of it onto the screen. You don’t need to use very much because it spreads truly thin once you use the squeegee. Make sure to get the part stuff clothed where you’re artistry “re gonna be all” and make sure it’s really, truly even Now, don’t leave this out in the light.Gave a love on it to dehydrate and pass the light-headeds off. You want it to dry in the dark. Once it’s dry you do want to work immediately because this nonsense is photosensitive, so the longer the light’s on it, the quicker it’s going to set. Reproduce out your artistry on some openness, and you can do this at any office supplies store, and then lay them backwards on the back of the screen. Lay a piece of glass over them to propagandize them down against the screen, and then provided a really light light on top of it for about 3-45 minutes. So, while we’re waiting on that, I want to tell you about this. In this box is a queen-size mattress. Unbelievably it fits in this box. It’s made by a company announced Casper, and it’s a combination of reminiscence and latex sud and they squish it down into a bag– persist it in this box. They ship it to you, you take a tool, and you rip open the luggage, and the whole mattress really inflates.

If you want to watch now, you can see a video about me making a king-size couch and on that berthed we use a Casper mattress. So I’ve been sleeping on it since I manufactured that video, and I can candidly articulate that I truly adore the mattress. Super cozy, I recommend them all the time when people ask my if I actually like them or not because I truly do. The cool stuff is you get to sleep on it for 100 lights and if you don’t like it for any ground, they’ll developed get onto. So if you are looking for a mattress, I clearly indicate checking this out go to You can use the code “MAKE” and that’ll got to get $50 off anything you order which is pretty awesome. So, is checked’ em out. Thanks to Casper for patronizing this video. Let’s get back to the publication. The light-footed exposes and thickens the emulsion that is not covered by the design, so you can see the lighter green stuff now didn’t get exposed. You can use a light-footed scatter and a soft toothbrush to improve remove this area.

The mode printing works is that the green province acts as a concealment. The white–or lighter area–lets the ink through onto the surface that you’re publication on. You want to do this gently, because you don’t want to remove anything that you actually involve This may take a little bit of period, and sometimes you may have missteps. If you have areas that are missteps, or nonsense you don’t want to book more, you can use some strip to cover them up. Use painter’s strip and not duct strip — the passage strip will rip off the emulsion. -Now lay out your shirt and target your screen, then include a nice thick-skulled be bead of the screen printing ink It’s best to have somebody else accommodate your screen and then pull the squeegee down across your book If you click here you can see one of my first videos on this direct was how to make a four hue printing press, this obliges this process- a lot easier but it’s really exactly the same you hook- in the screen text it up with your core text and then you can get repeatable nice prints- on multiple shirts you lay your shirt out in the same way, and then use the machine to contained the screen down in place you still gather it the same way and get just about the same outcomes you want to heat provided these by hurling them in the dryer for a few minutes You can reuse the screens extremely if you’re finished with them by putting some photo emulsion remover on them This is a simple solution that you can just kind of clean on with a newspaper towel or a toothbrush Make sure you situated it on both sides and it doesn’t have to stay on longer than got a couple of minutes Then you can use a hose to wash out all of the emulsion If “youre using” pitch-dark ink sometimes it will discolour the screen itself but you can still reprint through them- as long as the emulsion is croak Now it takes a little bit of practice, when you do this you are able end up having some bad shirts it takes a little while to get the detect to seeing how hard you need to push down the squeegee and how to do it evenly because you want to make sure you get a really even gather, so that the- ink is spread evenly through the screen So it’s best to find some old-fashioned t-shirts to tradition on before you try and use like your nice shirts that you purchased for this.

Now screen printing works on all sorts of things Textiles, so any type of t-shirt, canvas, luggage, aprons, even hats- if you can work on the form of the hat. All sorts of nonsense like that, any type of attire employs really really well. Just make sure to heat provide it into the clothing just like I testified you You can also print on paper if you wanted to see signs or summons, events like that, newspaper directs really well.

I’ve also engraved on wood several times You can watch my long committee video where now where I screen engraved my logo on it that was really easy to do I’ve done it for several your customers to situated their logo on events that I’ve manufactured -and it directs amazingly well and I’ve also done it on metal you just have to make sure you situated some kind of a clearly defined hair over it it to protect it because it will scrape off the metal pretty easily as long as you clear coat it you should be good to go so if you’re interested in engraving I’m going to have a link below to my site which will have a schedule of all the stuff I used and ties-in for you to find everything this is necessary so you can book on your own I hope you like this project and if you did let me know down in the comments below or at I love to hear from you guys, I love to see the stuff you’re working on it’s really inspiring for me so please continue to share that with me.
